Updates so far(mid May)
Saturday 18th May - The Big SingThe Beechwood Hotel, Worthing 10am for 10.30 to 4.00pm
This session will be a good opportunity to really get the words and harmonies of all the songs under our belts. We will be singing/learning all the songs which were not taught in the other groups and cracking the harmonies. Ann and Emily will be there steering us in the right direction. Please let southdownsfolksingers@gmail know if you are coming as they need to know numbers for words etc. LOADS of you are coming! Hooray!
Events over the summer.Who is able to sing?John Crane, firstname.lastname@example.org is now coordinating all the events and needs to let all event organisers know if the SDFS are able to attend in sufficient numbers, so PLEASE get back to him as soon as possible. He has been flooded by requests for the SDFS to attend at local events throughout the summer, but if singers aren't responding early enough to him, he may have to decline their invitations, which would be a shame as its an ideal opportunity to promote the SDFS and increase the membership
Local events as well as Bigger SingsThere are 'local' events on the DIARY DATES page. Again please reply promptly to John if you can go.
